Default #10, #8, #6, gauge single strand copper wire

Has anyone found any #10, #8, #6, gauge single stranded copper wire in Montreal or surrounding (not the braided stuff at HD).

It seems the stores only sell the thinner gauge #12 and higher in single stranded...

You Might want to try FTA Supply, 8106 Route Transcanadienne 514-337-6264, just before the Cote Vertu Exit. The have strange hours, but they used to sell that type of wire. You next choice would be Vi-Tesse Eletronics 3850 Cote vertu 514-335-1151, just before Begin, they also had that wire......

Exclamation Warning about FTA Supply!

WAIT BALM!

WARNING! Do not purchase from FTA Supply with your credit card, in fact I wouldn't go there at all. Here's the facts from a previous post a few pages back:

Try calling Montcalm Electronique, they might have that wire.

Default Montcalm

Montcalm has always been a Jerk. He's always more expensive.

I never buy from him, example:
He wanted $ 120.00 for a CM 7000, I got it at Raybel from Jean for $ 90.00

He's very expensive in installations also.

OTAinfo,

Too bad you didn't come here first,

I would have warned you about Montcalm. I was there a few years ago, and the man serving was VERY unprofessional and rude.

I promised him I would never go back there, and I DIDN'T, and I DONT regret it one bit.

I find in general the service in this City, Province has been going steadily downhill in the last 10 yrs.

I know two people who had a bad experience with Montcalm, not for ota but for big dish products.

Give a shout to these guys http://importbestbuys.com/catalog/ I think the owner is named Stephane I am sure he can get it for you if they do not have it in stock already.

Or you can try http://www.rpssat.com/ Guy's name is Roger, he doesn't have much product in stock but always gets what I need in about 1-2 days.
